The Ultimate Guide to 5×8 Dump Trailers For Sale

The primary function of a dump trailer is to haul and dispose of materials such as gravel, dirt, or debris efficiently and conveniently. A 5×8 dump trailer is incredibly versatile and the perfect equipment for home projects and other small jobs. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the numerous aspects of 5×8 dump trailers, from their unique features and advantages to the factors to consider when purchasing one.

5x8 dump trailer

Key Features of 5×8 Dump Trailers

  • Size and Capacity – A 5×8 dump trailer has a cargo bed measuring 5 feet wide and 8 feet long, providing ample space for transporting smaller loads. This size is perfect for homeowners, small businesses, and contractors who require a more compact trailer. A 5×8 dump trailer typically has a payload capacity of 3,000 to 5,000 pounds, making it suitable for handling small to medium-sized jobs. This particular listing is for a 3,000 lb unit. Click here to view the same unit with a 5K axle.

  • Hydraulic Lift System – One of the main features of a 5×8 dump trailer is its hydraulic lift system, which allows for the quick and easy unloading of materials. By using a remote control or wired controller, operators can lift the bed and dump the contents in a matter of seconds. The hydraulic lift system saves time and labor, streamlining operations for various projects.

  • Construction and Durability – 5×8 dump trailers are typically constructed with heavy-duty steel ensuring durability and long service life. They often feature reinforced sidewalls, D-rings can be added to this unit creating integrated tie-down points and with its sturdy frame, it can handle the weight of the materials being hauled.

Advantages of Using a 5×8 Dump Trailer

  • Enhanced Mobility – Due to its compact size, a 5×8 dump trailer is more maneuverable than larger trailers, making it ideal for navigating tight spaces and narrow driveways. This increased mobility allows users to access areas that may be challenging to reach with larger equipment.
  • Fuel Efficiency – Smaller dump trailers like the 5×8 model are generally lighter and more fuel-efficient than their larger counterparts. This reduced weight means lower towing requirements and, consequently, less fuel consumption during transport. The result is reduced operating costs for businesses and individuals.
  • Versatility – 5×8 dump trailers can be used in various industries and applications, including landscaping, construction, agriculture, and waste management. Whether you’re hauling soil, gravel, debris, or other materials, a 5×8 dump trailer can handle the task with ease.

Purchasing Considerations

  • New vs. Used – When considering a 5×8 dump trailer, you’ll need to decide whether to buy new or used. A new trailer will likely have a higher upfront cost but may come with a warranty and the latest features. On the other hand, a used trailer can be more affordable but may require more maintenance or repairs down the road. If you are looking for a used 5×8 dump trailer for sale Click Here to see if we have one available in our used inventory.

  • Material and Construction – Pay close attention to the materials used in the trailer’s construction, as this will affect its durability and longevity. A steel trailer will typically be heavier and more durable, while an aluminum trailer will be lighter and more resistant to corrosion. Assess your needs and preferences to determine which material is best for you.

  • Payload Capacity – Consider the payload capacity of the 5×8 dump trailer you’re interested in purchasing. Ensure it’s suitable for the types of materials you’ll be hauling and that it can handle the weight without compromising the trailer’s structural integrity.

Customization Options

  • Tailgate Design – Tailgates on 5×8 dump trailers can vary in design, with some featuring a barn-door style that opens from the center or a traditional single-piece tailgate. Others may offer a split-gate design that allows you to use the trailer as a spreader. Evaluate your needs and preferences to find the right tailgate design for your specific requirements.

  • Side Extensions – Some 5×8 dump trailers come with removable side extensions, which can increase the trailer’s sidewall height and overall capacity. This feature is particularly useful if you frequently haul materials with varying volume requirements. Opting for a trailer with side extensions can provide added flexibility and adaptability for various jobs.

  • Accessory Compatibility – Various accessories can enhance the functionality of a 5×8 dump trailer, such as a tarp system, toolboxes, and spare tire mounts. When purchasing a trailer, consider whether it’s compatible with the accessories you need or may need in the future. A trailer that offers compatibility with a range of add-ons will provide you with more customization options and increased usability.

Maintenance Tips for 5×8 Dump Trailers

  • Regular Inspections – Regularly inspect your 5×8 dump trailer for any signs of wear, damage, or corrosion. Check the tires for proper inflation and tread depth, and ensure that all electrical connections are clean and secure. Inspect the hydraulic system for any leaks or damage, and lubricate moving parts as needed. By conducting routine inspections, you can identify and address issues before they become more significant problems.

  • Cleaning – After using your 5×8 dump trailer, clean it thoroughly to remove any dirt, debris, or corrosive materials. This step is particularly crucial if you’ve been hauling materials like salt, chemicals, or manure, which can cause corrosion over time. Regular cleaning will help maintain the trailer’s appearance and prolong its service life.

  • Proper Storage – When not in use, store your 5×8 dump trailer in a dry, covered area to protect it from the elements. This precaution will help prevent rust, corrosion, and other weather-related damage. If covered storage isn’t an option, invest in a high-quality cover to shield the trailer from rain, snow, and UV exposure.

Renting vs. Buying a 5×8 Dump Trailer

  • Evaluating Your Needs – Before deciding whether to buy or rent a 5×8 dump trailer, evaluate your specific needs and usage frequency. If you only require a trailer for occasional projects or short-term use, renting may be a more cost-effective option. However, purchasing may be more economical in the long run if you plan to use the trailer regularly or for an extended period. Unfortunately, there are not many places that rend dump trailers. The most popular option for renting a trailer is Uhaul, but they don’t offer dump trailer rentals. At Brechbill Trailers, we do not offer a rental service, but we do have a rent-to-own program. This is perfect if you purchase the trailer but do not have the credit for traditional financing.

  • Cost Considerations – Renting a 5×8 dump trailer typically involves a daily, weekly, or monthly fee, which can add up quickly if you need the trailer for an extended period. Purchasing a trailer requires a more significant upfront investment, but it eliminates ongoing rental fees and can provide a better return on investment over time.

  • Maintenance Responsibilities -When renting a 5×8 dump trailer, maintenance is typically the rental company’s responsibility. If you purchase a trailer, our service center will gladly handle all maintenance and repairs for you. To schedule service, give us a call at (717) 262-6383

Buying a Trailer - This is everything you need to know - FAQs

Yes, the inventory listed on our website is up-to-date and accurate. If you see a trailer listed on our website, then it is most likely on our lot. You can check the top of each listing to see how many of each model we have in stock (as seen in the video above).

On a rare occasion, we will have more than one person attempting to reserve a trailer at the same time.  It is a good idea to reserve the trailer you want by placing a down payment through the website, especially if it is the last one in stock. This will ensure that the trailer is held for you and the unit will be ready for you to pick up at your convenience.


Yes. If our manufacturers make something that we do not have in stock, we will gladly order it for you.

In most cases lead time is 1 to 8 weeks.

If the manufacturer needs to start the manufacturing process from scratch, it will typically take them eight weeks to complete the build and have it ready for you on our lot. However, if they have a unit already in the manufacturing process, which can be customized for you, it is possible to have it ready in as little as one week.

If we do not have the color you are looking for, we can get it so long as the manufacturer offers that color option. At any given time, we may have hundreds of trailers on order, being manufactured. If the model you are looking for is already being built, we can have it painted in the color of your choice, or we can build one from scratch in approximately eight weeks if we don’t have one currently on order.

 All fees and taxes paid are passed on to the state/county with the exception of the $199 Document fee. 

Out-of-State Customers
Since you are out of state, we can’t do your titling and so we can’t charge you sales tax. You will receive a signed bill of sale and the Certificate of Origin here which will allow you to apply for title and registration in your home state and that is where you would pay your sales tax.

Your out-the-door cost here will only include:

  • Our document fee $199
  • Pennsylvania’s $1 per tire tax ($1 x #tires on trailer)
  • Optional 60 day temporary tag $60.

Your total out-the-door cost on a trailer with 4 tires will just be $263 over the price of the trailer.

Let’s look at an example. In the example below we can see that the price of this trailer is $9,000. It has 4 tires.
For an out-of-state customer the “out-the-door price” would be $9,263.

The Out-of-state Formula = Cash Price + $259+$1 x # of tires
Out the door example

Pennsylvania Customers

If you are a Pennsylvania resident, you will use the same formula to calculate your out-the-door price, but you will also need to add Pennsylvania state sales tax, title fee, and registration fee to the total. These fees can vary based on the trailer you purchase. If the trailer is financed then there is also an additional lien fee. Below are details regarding the title fee, lien fee, and registration fees.

Title fee = $67

Lien Fee (if financed)= $33

Registration fees for trailers 3,000 GVWR
One Year = $7
Five Year = $35

Registration fees for trailers 3,001 – 10,000 GVWR
One Year = $14
Five Year = $70

Registration fees for trailers 10,001 GVWR and higher
One Year = $43
Permanent  = $210

County Registration fees
The counties below charge and additional $5 per year registration fee in addition to the state’s registration fees above. The $5 would only be charged once on permanent tags.
Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Blair, Bucks, Butler, Cambria, Centre, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Greene, Lackawanna, Lawrence, Lycoming, Mifflin, Montgomery, Philadelphia, Pike, Schuylkill, Union, Westmoreland, York

Tire Tax
$1 Per Tire including spare

Yes, we offer personal credit loans in a business or personal name through Sheffield Financial, and business credit loans through New Lane Financial. Additionally, those who do NOT want to use their credit can rent-to-own with no credit check. Watch the video above for complete details about all of our financing options.

This depends on which financing option you choose. See below for details.

Sheffield Financial Personal Credit Loans – No down payment is required if pre-qualified for a personal Sheffield Loan

New Lane Financial Commercial Loans – Most of the time NO down-payment is required. On occasion a down-payment is required based on a variety of factors.

Rent-to-Own – If you are considering a rent-to-own option for purchasing a trailer, a down payment will be required. You can use the Rent-to-Own calculator to determine the amount of the down payment required for the trailer you wish to purchase. The video below demonstrates how to use the calculator.

We will hold any trailer on our lot for up to fifteen days with a $500 non-refundable down payment that is deducted from your balance due.

There are three ways to reserve your trailer.

1.) By clicking the “Reserve this trailer button” next to the trailer you want to reserve.

2.) If you received a quote by text or email you can click the link at the bottom of that quote to place your down-payment and reserve the unit.

3.) Or simply give us a call at 717-262-6383

Yes, you have the option to register the trailer under either your personal or business name if you pay for it outright. If you are financing the trailer, you may also register it under either name as long as it is approved by the financing company. However, in some cases the financing company may not allow you to register the trailer under your business name if the financing is under your personal name, or vice-versa.

If purchasing a trailer under a business name, the PA requires us to have a signed letter on company Letterhead authorizing your agent picking up the trailer to sign documentation on behalf of your company for the purchase. This applies even if the person picking up the trailer is the owner.



It is important to discuss this with your salesman prior to sending your driver to pick up the trailer. 
In order to understand the chart below, you must first watch the video above.


For Rent to Own customers, refer to our Rent to Own FAQ

For all other purchases, you will need the following:
• A valid state-issued Photo ID or Driver’s License. PA customers must have an address correction card if the address on the ID is not current.
• Form of payment
• If purchasing a trailer under a business name, you will need a signed letter on company Letterhead authorizing your agent picking up the trailer to sign documentation on behalf of your company for the purchase. This applies even if the person picking up the trailer is the business owner.
• If applicable, tax exemption form or documentation required by a financing arrangement.

Non PA residents will register their new trailer at their local DMV. In order to do so the DMV requires 2 documents, which are the “Bill of Sale” and the “MSO”. We will provide you with both of these documents at the time of purchase. 

In State Residents
As a Pennsylvania resident, if you want to purchase a trailer tax-free, you must send your tax exemption form to your salesperson at least 48 hours before you plan to pick up the trailer. If you do not provide the form at least 48 hours in advance, there is an additional $50 processing fee.

Pa Farm & Mining Exemptions
It is important to note that customers who choose to be tax-exempt for the reason of Farm or Mining, are not able to register a license plate for the trailer.

Out of state customers
Out of state customer do not pay sale tax when purchasing a trailer. In this case sales tax is paid when the customer registers the trailer in their home state.

Pennsylvania residents will receive both registration and a license plate at the time of purchase. Non-Pennsylvania residents, on the other hand, have the option to purchase a 60-day temporary tag, which is $60 and allows them to tow the trailer for 60 days before having to register it at their local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

A permanent tag is a tag that never expires. The state of Pennsylvania does offer a permanent tag option for trailers with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,001 lbs or higher. The permanent tag costs $210 and can be transferred once to a different trailer, in the future, for a transfer fee of $9.

Yes, Pennsylvania does require new trailers to be inspected. Your first years inspection and inspection sticker are included with your purchase.

No. The state does not print a title for the trailer until it is first purchased from the dealership. If you are a resident of Pennsylvania, we will handle the necessary paperwork and submit it to the state on your behalf. You can expect to receive your title in the mail within six weeks. If you are an out of state resident you will be given an MSO. When you take your MSO and bill of sale to your local DMV they will take the MSO and issue a title in your name.

All of the above is assuming that the trailer is NOT being financed. If the trailer is financed, then most often the title is required to go to the financing company which will release it to you once you make your final payment. This is not set in stone as not all financing companies operate the same way.

Yes, we do accept trade-ins at our dealership. However, we like to be upfront with our customers and let them know that in most cases, they can get a higher price for their trailer if they sell it privately rather than trading it in with us. If you do decide to trade in your trailer, our sales team will be happy to see if it is something we would be interested in and provide you with an offer.

Yes, we do offer a cash discount. If you choose to pay with a debit or credit card there is a 3% fee for everything over $5,000.

All of the pricing displayed on our website is our best cash prices. We are a volume-based dealer and put our best prices right up front.

NOTE: if you choose to pay with a check or bank wire, you will also qualify for the cash discount.

Yes, you may split your payment between as many different cards as you wish.

Unfortunately no. Our credit card merchant charges a 3% fee on all credit card transactions. As a courtesy to our customers, we absorb this cost for the first $5,000. However, for any amount over $5,000, the 3% fee will be passed on to the customer, regardless of whether the payment is made with one card or multiple cards.

De-rating a trailer refers to the process of lowering its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). This means that the trailer is no longer legally permitted to carry as much weight as it was originally designed to. It’s important to note that the physical structure of the trailer itself is not altered during this process, rather, the change is reflected in the GVWR listed on the trailer’s VIN sticker and title. While the trailer may still be capable of carrying its original weight, it is illegal to do so once it has been de-rated.

$250. This price includes the cost of the replacement MSO and VIN sticker.

This will depend on the manufacturer. Some manufacturers such as Bwise allow re-rating the GVWR of a trailer after titling, but many of our other manufacturers, such as EBY and BigTex, do not. If the manufacturer permits re-rating the GVWR of your trailer, there is some paperwork you will need to file with the state as well as accompanying fees. Anyone on our trailer sales team will be happy to advise you on your options for your particular trailer.

GVWR stands for Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and represents the maximum weight a trailer is designed to carry, including the trailer’s own weight and the weight of any cargo. It is determined by the manufacturer and can be found on the trailer’s VIN Sticker, which is usually located on the tongue or front of the trailer.

Payload is the weight of the cargo and any additional equipment that a trailer can legally carry. It is calculated by subtracting the trailer’s “empty weight” from the GVWR. For example, if a vehicle has a GVWR of 10,000 pounds, and an empty weight of 3,000 pounds, then its payload capacity would be 7,000 pounds.

If your trailer has the adjustable channel coupler and you wish to have a pintle ring instead of the ball coupler, we will gladly swap it out for you at no charge. If your trailer has a welded on coupler, we can modify it in our shop and your salesperson can give you pricing on that.

Some do, and some do not. Each listing will specify if the spare is included in the “Options” tab. If the unit DOES include a spare tire, then it will say so in the options section as seen in the example image below.

spare tire answer

In most cases we can have the manufacturer print a replacement MSO for trailers we have sold. The cost is $250. Contact our trailer sales team to begin the process.

When all of the paperwork is prepared in advance, and payment has been made by cash, check, wire, or card, the checkout process takes only 15-30 minutes.

Financed deals, Rent to own deals, and tax-exempt deals typically take longer to process- around 45 min-1.5 hours

Businesss Hours

Yes, we do offer delivery through some third-party shippers. Delivery service starts at $3.70 a mile one way, plus a $50 prep fee. There may be other costs we incur depending on the trailer’s destination and region through which it travels. Contact our trailer sales team for a quote on delivery to your location.

To determine if your truck is strong enough to tow the trailer you want, you need to verify that the “Towing Capacity” of your vehicle is greater than or equal to the GVWR of the trailer you are looking to purchase.

This can be a difficult question because so many variables are involved, such as your bed size, engine, transmission, trim package, and whether you drive a 4×4 or 2×4 truck. All these things can affect your towing capacity.

For a general idea, you can do a google search just like you see in the example image below, but insert the year, make, and model of your vehicle. The best way to know for certain is to check your owner’s manual or call your local dealer, give them the VIN#, and they can let you know exactly.

The DOT requires manufacturers to equip any trailers over 3,000# GVWR with brakes.

If your trailer has brakes, your vehicle needs to have a brake controller to actuate the trailer brakes.

Some newer model vehicles are equipped with OEM brake controllers from the factory. If your vehicle does not have a factory trailer brake controller, we carry a variety of options in stock and our shop technicians install them routinely. Your salesperson can assist you in verifying if you need to have a brake controller installed, and availability and pricing for installation on your particular vehicle.

Trailers with brakes can be pulled without a brake controller because the brakes will just freewheel without a controller to actuate them, HOWEVER,  DOING SO WILL INCREASE YOUR RISK OF AN ACCIDENT AND ACCOMPANYING LIABILITY.

Absolutely! We carry brake controllers and installation kits for most vehicles and in many cases, our shop can install a brake controller on your vehicle while we complete the paperwork for your new trailer. Your salesperson can assist you in obtaining availability and pricing on a brake controller installation on your particular vehicle.
